Lawless Capitalism: The New Economic Royalty and the Rule of Law
The American Constitution Society hosts Professor Steven A. Ramirez of Loyola University Chicago School of Law. His talk will focus on the financial crisis, the economic downturn, and income inequality. Ramirez argues that the power of financial and corporate elites to distort law and regulation for their profit at great cost to everyone else drove every aspect of the crisis. The solution lies in the imposition of an economic rule of law that curbs the abuse of economic power much like the Constitution operates with respect to political power. Free Chipotle provided!
